Sure, you can take a three-hour tram tour of the Johnson Space Center or spend all day checking out the city’s many, many museums, but we’re pretty sure your friend is never coming back if that’s all you do. Instead, take ‘em out to some of our best restaurants to show off Houston’s culinary prowess… and then go to some of our best bars, where they’ll surely forget the names of our best restaurants.

Top 5 Reasons To Rent An Apartment

The Top 5 Reasons to Rent An Apartment:

1)Flexibility and Less Risk- it's less costly and much quicker to buy out of an apartment lease, and you don't have to sell your house first; no tax or insurance increases year after year; less of a problem if you need to move due to job transfer or move quickly for a variety of reasons. 
 
2)More Bang For Your Buck- enjoy an array of custom interior custom finishes and features; location, location, location skip that traffic, your lifestyle, friends, dining and hot entertainment spots can be just minutes from your apartment; say goodbye to gym membership fees with state of the art fitness facilities for a better you; make new friends or entertain and impress your old friends with amenities such as rooftop social lounges, firepits, game and sports rooms and resort style pools; have a pet park right out your door with washing station and agility equipment - the amenities you can enjoy are all depending on the apartment you choose; less money upfront for renting, actually there are select apartments offering 2 months free rent + other deals!

High Rents, it's a bird, it's a plane. . .nope, it's just economics!

In today’s apartment rental market, most renters will agree - good apartments are hard to find in the Houston and surrounding areas. Oh, there are plenty of good apartments to be found, but this definition pertains to good and low priced apartments! You know what I mean, what rents were just a few years ago! Rents today are considerably higher than just a few years ago! There are many reasons for this - demand increased, limited availability at the time. So, for the homeowners that lost their homes to foreclosure or were forced into a quick sale due to being upside down or a lost job, damaged their credit, most turned to renting apartments.
